Our Story

Colin and Cathy Wolfe are the founders of Ireland Wild Escapes and Connemara Wild Escapes. Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.

In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!

We soon recognised an opportunity to promote and sell the wealth of activities and experiences which are available along the magnificent Wild Atlantic Way, with its breath taking land and seascapes, so set about contacting these small businesses and creating the activity and experiences which are available to book now on this website. With our over 550 suppliers supporting these products, it has grown to provide the visitor with a comprehensive offering of all that is available along the wonderful and immersive Wild Atlantic Way.

We are never bored in this place of nature and wilderness. There are so many wonderful things to do and appreciate in nature. The more we do, the more things we find and want to do, we keep uncovering these fantastic and authentic experiences and we are excited to share them all with you…Come and discover for yourself!
